Subject: Amazing early film of SF!
This is a great early 16mm film of San Francisco, much of it still recognizable today! The building of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Fish Market are highlights, as is the 1929 Packard parked out in front of the market! As the car is featured in Col. Charles G. Kirk's other film Tourists in Tijuana and Agua Caliente, it was quite possibly his own personal car! He was a Colonel in the USAF, and later he became R.O.T.C. Commandant, and professor of air science at the University of Iowa.
